From where I live in, the A60 costs around $290, and the A70 at around $350. It really annoys me since in the U.S. the A60 is now priced at around $199!

And that is the reason why I think I should wait. Not only are prices here higher than Mt. Fuji, they don't seem to care to bring it down.

Oh well...

Currently in the Philippines, and won't be leaving the country 'til Spring next year. I don't think prices in the U.K. (where I will be living the better part of this decade) are any cheaper.

But hey, nice to know that the price there dropped $50!

Default I agree with everyone

But then again some of the "old" models are better for what you might want to do? ex: Olympus C-2199UZ and Canon Pro90 IS

Hi there RSD,

The cost for the A80 is going to be $599 Canadian. I work at Blacks Photography, and have been talking with head office about the price for the new camera. It will sell out though... I have been told to expect the camera for October 15th or so.... but sometimes it takes a while for the camera to trek from the warehouse to the store.

Where in Canada are you?

If the price falls on something after I buy it, I just shrug it off. I figure, I already have, the camera, computer, whatever and, I've been using it and enjoying so to me, that more than makes up the difference in the cost. Waiting for the price to drop doesn't always work out. Look at all the people who waited for the price of a Betamax VCR to drop and then bought them! LOL

I am in So Calif and found the A60 in only one store: Target! and it was $230. I have yet to see it in another chain and I have visited a bunch, as we are wall-to-wall retail & parking lots here. But the A70 is indeed $299 everywhere, such a deal! I think the A80 is $350 when it comes out, not sure, might be higher. So the A70 may drop $20, is it worth the wait? Anyway, I thought you told me that you already selected an A70!
